卡尔·海森(Carl Hiaasen)名言

My books are shelved in different places, depending on the bookstore. Sometimes they can be found in the Mystery section, sometimes in the Humor department, and occasionally even in the Literature aisle, which is somewhat astounding.

根据书店的不同,我的书被放在不同的地方。有时在神秘部分,有时在幽默部,有时甚至在文学走道上都能找到它们,这多少有些惊人。

When you're given a newspaper column, you're not being paid to sit on a fence and scratch your chin and say 'On the one hand this' and 'On the other hand that.' You're getting paid for your opinion.

当你得到一个报纸专栏时,你不会因为坐在篱笆上搔下巴说“一方面是这个”和“另一方面是那个”而得到报酬,你的观点会得到报酬。

I won't be making any friends in the corporate suites.

我不会在公司套房交朋友。

To me, the newspaper business was a way to learn about life and how things worked in the real world and how people spoke. You learn all the skills - you learn to listen, you learn to take notes - everything you use later as a novelist was valuable training in the newspaper world. But I always wanted to write novels.

对我来说,报业是一种了解生活、了解现实世界中事物如何运作以及人们如何说话的方式。你学会了所有的技巧——你学会了倾听,你学会了记笔记——你后来作为小说家所用的一切都是报界宝贵的训练。但我一直想写小说。

I think it's always good for the author to stay a good cattle prod's distance from the actual moviemaking.

我认为对作者来说,与实际的电影制作保持一定的距离总是有好处的。

When I'm deciding to read a book, I never open to the first chapter, because that's been revised and worked over 88 times. I'll just turn to the middle of the book, to the middle of a chapter, and just read a random page and I'll know right away whether this is the real deal or not.

当我决定读一本书的时候,我从不打开第一章,因为第一章已经修改过88次了。我就翻到书的中间,一章的中间,随便看一页,我马上就知道这是不是真的。

卡尔·海森

Lots of people can write a good first page but to sustain it, that's my litmus test. If I flip to the middle of the book and there's a piece of dialogue that's just outstanding, or a description, then I'll flip back to the first page and start it.

很多人都能写出好的第一页,但要保持下去,这是我的试金石。如果我翻到书的中间,有一段非常突出的对话,或者一段描述,那么我会翻回到第一页开始。

卡尔·海森

My books are character-driven. They're not driven by the story.

我的书是性格驱动的。他们不是被故事驱使的。
